I saw a documentary on the science channel the other day, where some scientists are working on a way to bring back dinosaurs for research purposes. apparently they got the inspiration from "jurassic park", so now there's research on turning that fantasy into a reality. let's just pretend for a moment, that the technology exists to even bring back prehistoric life, do you honestly think we should? if you think so, then please explain what would be the benefits of it. if not, then please say why it's not a good idea.
Steven: Bringing 'em back is a learning process! We need to understand every facet of genetic engineering. I'm not saying to fill the zoo with dinosaurs, I'm just saying perfect the genetic process of doing so. Who can predict what future use of "knowing" might produce? Oh yes! Bring 'em back!
Well qwark, you have fun with that. As you can see...Steve, Paradise, and myself are evacuating the universe. You're welcome to join us, if you'd like. Remember, "life finds a way." You'll remember us when the dinos are running rampant, and you realize that there are reasons for things to be extinct.
All right. All right, you win. I'll have admit the idea of watching you wrangle a T-Rex is rather sexy. I might stick around a minute and watch. I'll make you a deal--you bring down the dino, and I'll tend your wounds and even make your first dinner. I'm an excellent cook, and an even better *cough* "nurse."
Hey Glass..yer on! ..but wait, I kill it you clean it ok? You do that and I'll make ya a hi style dinosaur jacket outa the skin of that dinosaur leg that'll make you the talka-the-town!...deal? When you get on the space craft outa here, spread it around that I designed and built that gorgeous jacket for ya eh? I'll be here when the "et's" arrive to do some business with me..ok with you? Be nice and I may even give you a cut! I'm that kinda guy! lotsa heart where the "bucks" are concerned. oh yeh! :-)
Glass: Damn! ya got me all excited...I'm not one who prematurely ejaculates...breath deeply and slowly in and out...drop yer head 'tween yer legs Qwark...you'll be ok!!! Whew! ok, ok, I'm aight! Now we just have to wait for them damned dinosaurs. I'll let ya know when Glass....breath deep and slow qwark...deep and slowwww.
Steve: Hey never thought of that! I could get a gov't grant for billions and feed the needy! Thanks buddy! Do ya have any idea when them there dino's are gonna be re-produced? A man's gotta think ahead!
lol. looks that way. although i am curious to see if they're actually going to pull it off. although i'm with you, i think it's a terrible idea. because for one, we have no idea how these dinosaurs were even like back in those times. i mean seriously. why does everyone assume a brontosaurus was friendly? just because it's a plant eater? african elephants and rhinos are plant eaters too, but i wouldn't call them friendly. if you piss any of them off, they're likely to kill you. who's not to say even the plant eating dinos might not be the same way.
I don't see why it would be a bad idea, given the species of course. I don't think any small herbivores would cause much of a problem. If you get into cloning a T-Rex on the other hand....
The knowledge that would arise from studying a live animal would immediately supercede any risks. Imagine what we'd learn about species development and evolution... not to mention that it would also be wicked cool.
Yes! *packs the Scotch, some extra underwear, and her handy death ray...Rips a hole in the universe, stands on the edge of it holding out her hand to Paradise while the wind whips her hair around her face...* COME ON, WE CAN MAKE IT!!!
Yeah, haven't you ever gone through the black hole to the alternate universe on the other side? I thought everybody made the trip at least once. I guess a lotta peeps decided not to come back...the nude thing, maybe, or maybe the extraterrestrial music, very heavenly and hot at the same time.
Are you sure they were watching Jurassic Park? Didn't those dinosaurs get out of hand and kill everyone? Yeah, that was the first thing I thought when I watched that movie too. Let's make dinosaurs so they can rip us apart! Brilliant *rolls eyes*
*Hands Pani a bottle of scotch and a death ray* That's all you'll need...Just jump through, and everything will be fine. You'll lose your clothes on the way through though, but you won't need em. Good luck.
I'll join you just after qwark takes down that T-Rex.
We are a mature couple wanting to spend a few months traveling Eearope and Britain from this September hopefully .( I am from Wales & traveled a bit there ) . We love the idea of buying a cheap campervan so we have...
